- Half Day
You will be picked up at 08:00. Take a closer look at Chiang Mai’s rich traditions with a morning tour to Wat Umong Temple. The temple’s full name is Wat Umong Suan Phutthatham, which translates to “Temple of the tunnels and Buddha Dhamma garden”. A number of tunnels dug out of a mound contains shrines with Buddha images, where devotees can pay their respect to the Buddha. The large, shady temple grounds are often filled with the sounds of monks’ chanting. The temple’s setting in a forested area with a natural lake makes Wat Umong an excellent place for meditation.

Then, take a short drive onwards to a local hilltribe village inhabited by the White Hmong hilltribe. Spend time exploring the village, meeting the inhabitants and learning about the traditions and customs of this unique ethnic group. ThisHmong tribal villageis a big village consisting of a museum, beautiful garden, houses and souvenir shops. This is worth a visit for a fascinating insight to the history of the Hmong people.
